Matt starts the course by taking a close-up look at photo gear in the digital age. He gives you great pro tips on everything from the internal workings of a camera and how to maintain all the parts, to the best choices for external flashes and microphones for given situations.

Next, is a section on image composition which looks at both the technical side as well as the creative side of this fascinating visual art and craft. Learn how to reduce image noise and make time-saving adjustments to your images INSIDE the camera before even taking them out to photo editing software. Matt also explains graphic principles like the Rule of Thirds as well as how to make great use of optical phenomena like the Bokeh of certain lenses.

Next up is real-life tips and tricks.
